White House denies Obama-Clinton ticket in the works
Yahoo News ^ | 10/06/10 | Rachel Rose Hartman

Posted on 10/06/2010 7:12:08 AM PDT by Enchante

The denials follow comments made by journalist Bob Woodward during a CNN interview Tuesday night in which Woodward suggested that the White House is seriously discussing dumping Vice President Joe Biden in favor of the Secretary of State.

"It's on the table," Woodward said yesterday on John King, USA. "Some of Hillary Clinton's advisers see it as a real possibility in 2012."

Obama-Hillary in 2012

don't be surprised if this is the ticket

Biden no longer adds anything for a greatly deflated Obamanation

The Democrats will be desperate to add some hype and "first-ever" ticket

while Hillary might seem unlikely to go along, it's actually the only (political) step forward for her, unless she can engineer the removal of Obozo from the ticket entirely

Obama would never put Hillary on the ticket because he knows if she were VP, he might suddenly have a fatal accident or “ commit suicide”.

The Pope could be tagged for the VP spot and it wouldn’t change a thing. You don’t defang a rattlesnake by breaking off its rattler.

Ain’t gonna happen.

Hillary has spent two years attending Tupperware Parties in the Congo, and there is no way in hell she is going to take second fiddle to Premier Hussein.

What is more likely is that Hillary will resign as SecState shortly after the Democrats get their asses handed to them in the upcoming midterms, and will launch her own campaign to challenge Mulla Hussein for the Democratic Nomination in 2012. He is laying the groundwork for Hillary to come riding to the rescue of the Democrats, and she won’t waste any time hammering on him once she launches her bid.

Hillary would jump in as VP, especially if she thinks the zer0 can win again — this way she can run as the incumbent VP in 2016.
Running against zer0 in 2012 is too difficult, if things keep going the way they have been, no Dem will win the White House - so it would be pointless to run against him.

She will go for it

“...”It's on the table,” Woodward said ...”

It may be on Obama’s table, but not on the Draggon Lady's table. She has no interest in playing second fiddle behind this loser.

She knows Obama either won’t seek re-election or won’t/can’t win. She isn’t getting any younger. She won’t want to wait for 2016 for her turn. She and Bill still hate Obama and she believes (rightly so) that she is much more qualified to be president. She will run for president. JMHO.

Agreed.

IF the kenyan can talk hillary into being VP on his ticket, it will only be to keep her from running AGAINST him in the primary.

It will be the Obama-Obama ticket.

He is the only one worthy of being his running mate!

They are now dissing this because Hillary’s poll numbers are so low.

Exactly. I expect Hillary to announce her resignation sometime after election day. Then early next year she will go on one of her "listening tours" and then she will seek the nomination.

As I said during the last campaign, she would be easier to beat than Hussein. She would also have been more acceptable (yes, I know stick in the eye) than he would be. A lot of money was played under the table to get him elected and they now understand just how much they overpaid. He won't be on the ticket and all this snarkiness with MO wanting out is just smoke and mirrors leading to him being kicked out on his Kenyan arse.

Hillary is only 62, she will wait until 2016 if she thinks that is the best path for her. In 2016, she will only be 68

I predict Clinton will handily beat Obama in the Primary.

If she does, then I don’t think the ticket will be Clinton-Obama. It will be Clinton-Some Other Liberal Kook.

Unless Clinton decides to stand down and not run this time, which I think is unlikely. However, I do think they will keep it civil and not throw hard punches at each other as they did last time.

If Obama can pull or steal the primary out of the hat, an Obama-Clinton ticket is possible. However, Clinton can probably choose any position she wants. And I’m not sure VP is the one she would choose. She will probably go for another cabinet position to boost her resume for President or stay Sec of State another 4 years.

Very few in their upper 60s are elected. The average is in the 50s. At 68 I think she would be too old. She’ll run in 2012. No reason to wait.

Hillary will be 69 years-old in 2016. Not gonna happen. Plus, I don't think her as VP can drag this loser President to a win, anyhow.

If she wants the top prize, it has to be 2012. Expect the long-knives to come out early next year. Clintonites Rahmbo Craig have already left; expect more Clinton defections in the near future.

Ordinarily, I would think this would be true simply because Obama says it’s not true. However, it seems improbable for a number of reasons, and actual false rumors do arise from time to time that even a liar like Obama must repudiate. After all, even liars have to tell the truth once in a while, otherwise their normal lying the rest of the time wouldn’t be terribly effective.

Obama may, indeed, need a new running mate if Biden just wanders off and gets lost somewhere (NOT a Marcy Park scenario - Biden just misplaces himself...could happen...he's an idiot...).

Maybe this was determined in 2008. He gets this term, she gets the next. I don’t think he will run for a 2nd term.

This is the only way NObama can keep Hillary from trying to run on her own. She would probably beat him for the nomination. Don’t think anyone is going to vote for a Dem Pres after what NObama has done for 4 years.
